ugla is a quartet whose leader, the author of music and lyrics is Magdalena Sowul – a singer and clarinetist with classical education, at the same time looking for alternative forms of sound expression. Winner of the 47th FAMA 2017 Festival in the category of Vocalists. The band uses acoustic instruments and performs original songs combining trance energy with delicacy. In the compositional layer, they are based on the technique of live looping – looping, processing and overlapping successive layers of simple motifs. They experiment with the color of instruments using effects, and the forms of their works contain a dose of impreciseness open to improvisation. They create harmonic spaces that correspond with the introspective nature of the texts. In their sound, inspirations from folk music of different cultures mix with minimalism, song tradition with electronics and avant-garde experiment.
